Moonset, inkblots and other matters

I was cleaning up my iPhone memory and came across a number of photos I had altered and thought I might share them. Interesting that there is a mix of light and darkness.

The alteration of the moonset simply shows the flip side of the morning light - but I think it shows another  dimension of the the morning light.

The shots I refer to as light and dark angel are alterations of a couple of photos of ink blots. Fiona's exercise program got wet and the purple ink seeped nicely down the fold of the paper - though Fiona was not impressed I thought it resulted in some interesting shapes and colour.

 I took a photo of a drain in a pond with leaves and rubbish being washed down it - a murky shot - yet when flipped the light and contrast turns it into something altogether different.

And how could one resist the light shining though a small glass of red wine.

 I still find it is an interesting challenge to see if the iPhone shots I take can be seen in a different light.


  1. Ha... "to see if the iPhone shots I take can be seen in a different light", I'm curious about that statement.

  2. Nice pictures. I love all, especially the ink stain, but all very good abstractions. Greetings.

  3. It's amazing what you can do with photos these days... absolute works of art.

  4. It is amazing, indeed . . I have an iphone (only a few mos. old) and have no idea of it's potential! :)

  5. woah! great alterations B. love the contrasts you created. it's like another world!
